Politics / Re: Pandora Papers: I Broke No Law ― Peter Obi by dizon: 10:43pm On Oct 07
ogododo:
Former Anambra State Governor and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,  Vice Presidential Candidate in the 2019 election, Mr Peter Obi, has reacted to a media report that he breached Nigerian laws by engaging in secret businesses set up in tax havens, insisting that he broke no law.

An online publication quoting Pandora Papers had listed Obi as one of those personalities who clandestinely set up and operated businesses overseas, including in notorious tax and secrecy havens in ways that breached Nigerian laws.

The Pandora Papers is a leak of about 12 million documents that revealed hidden wealth and tax avoidance by some of the world’s rich and powerful.

But reacting to this Thursday, Obi said it was exhilarating that nowhere in the article was he accused of any form of corruption, whether in the form of diversion of public funds or in any other manner during and after his stewardship as the governor of Anambra State.

According to him, the publication did not also allege that he had been engaged in unlawful business ventures at any time whatsoever, adding that his understanding was that the allegation bordered more on tax avoidance and non-declaration of some jointly owned assets.


He also wondered if thorough scrutiny and appreciation of all the facts and circumstances surrounding the alleged transactions were made by the writers.

On the allegation that he violated the Nigerian Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act, as well as sections of the 5th Schedule to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), by not declaring any alleged assets in Companies registered outside the Nigerian Federation, Obi said the authors displayed ignorance on matters of Trust and International Investment Practices.

The former governor said he did not in any respect whatsoever violate any law before, during and after his stewardship as the Governor of Anambra.

He added that in all matters relating to his investments and declaration of his personal assets, wherever they may be found, he proceeded, pursuant to professional opinions and advice of investment experts both locally and internationally.

Obi said he also engaged and acted on solicited advice by reputable legal practitioners on whose opinion he relied.

He urged all well-meaning persons to see through what he called “the hopeless sleight and ignore the publication”.

The kind of politics we play in this country is satanic. People will just go out and manufacture all sorts of lies against someone just because of politics. I read the entire jargons they wrote about this man and I don't see any crime he committed in the entire long story. All I see is an attempt by desperate politicians to paint him bad.

Do they came to testify that they lost someone to endsars shooting at Lekki tollgate? quote author=dizon post=106209215]
So all the people that came to testify at the endsars panel are ghosts? You are not struggling to see anything, you never tried to see.

Not only that, even the real victims of the shooting were there with their wounds and the doctors that treated them after they were shot.

Foreign Affairs / Re: Afraid Of World War 3, Milley Went Behind Trump’s Back To Calm China by dizon: 6:43pm On Sep 26
Mintum:
Just another set of lies from the lunatic leftists.
The story doesn't even make sense, there's no way the Chinese will accept the words of a subordinate military officer over the word of the commander in chief. The Chinese are not fools, the so called milley or whatever could be sacked at any time if Trump didn't like him anymore so his so called assurance is useless.

If she is a good in law then she should be more concerned about giving me something I can enjoy. Her insisting I must eat something I don't like is already a sign of the kind of bad in law she would be. I won't eat it and if that's the reason they won't let me marry their daughter, then they can keep her. If she is truly interested in the marriage then she shouldn't sit down there doing nothing while her man is being disqualified just because he doesn't want to eat a particular dish.

I am not angry you threw a meaningless hypothetical at me. To answer your question God doesnt exist but it is my problem because until the evil that is religion is eliminated from this world men will always be blind. Btw I do not consider myself intelligent, but an average citizen.
Your own question is also hypothetical and meaningless.
